The Microsoft Windows App Store offers The Gunstringer: Dead Man Running game for Windows 8 or Windows RT for free until Monday, January 28th, 2013. The game was normally priced at $1.50 and now you can download it for free.
The Gunstringer: Dead Man Running is a fast paced, endless runner akin to Temple Run in its fast-paced forward-motion gameplay. The game incorporates skilled shooting seamlessly with a level driven story mode. Players sprint through three sprawling, old west inspired, locations that span across 15 levels as the Gunstringer, the legendary skeleton cowboy risen from the dead to hunt down and kill his old gang before returning to the underworld. But as the ol’ saying goes, if you climb in the saddle, be ready for the ride. Players must avoid deadly obstacles, take aim in fast paced shootin’ challenges, collect tasty loot, and battle outlaws all while being pursued by the hounds of hell.
Once players have completed the Story Mode, they can challenge their friends for bragging rights and loot payouts in each of the three Endless Runner levels. Hard earned loot can be exchanged for new customization options such as weapons, power-ups and more to aid in the Gunstringer’s quest for the evil bandit!
If you haven’t picked up the game yet head on over to the Windows 8 marketplace here to pick it up. You need the app store installed which is only for windows 8 and RT to download the game. For those having trouble finding it in the app store, search for The Gunstringer not Dead Man Running.
